  • An investigation by the Delaware State Police's New Castle County Drug Unit into marijuana dealing from a Pike Creek home has resulted in the arrest of two men.
    Over the past few months, detectives determined that Nicholas Chapman, 19, of Wilmington, was selling marijuana from his home in the 5600 block of West Timberview Court in the Pike Creek area.
    On four occasions detectives observed Chapman sell marijuana from the home, and once he sold marijuana in a nearby parking lot.
    During two of the sales from the home he was assisted by Kevin Cecelia, 21, of Wilmington, police said.
    On Oct. 3 detectives executed a search warrant at the residence and found 105.8 grams of marijuana in the house, and 153.2 grams of marijuana inside of Chapman's vehicle. Also recovered were drug distribution supplies.
    Chapman was arrested at the scene and transported to Troop 2, where he was charged with six counts of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, three counts of second-degree conspiracy, and possession of drug paraphernalia, police said. He was released after posting $46,000 secured bail.
    Cecelia was taken into custody after returning to the residence while detectives were still there. He was transported to Troop 2 and charged with two counts of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance and two counts of second-degree conspiracy, police said. He was released on $23,000 unsecured bail.
